GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for January 2, 2017.

Mummers Parade

The Philadelphia New Year’s Day Mummers Parade was yesterday. The parade officially started in 1901 but dates back all the way to the mid-17th century. Here are a couple videos I took of all the festivities yesterday.

College Crosse News.

The Kid Chris with a great post on the top Big Ten games to watch this upcoming season.

Rutgers @ Johns Hopkins (March 31 ) - RUUUUUTTTTGGGGGEEEERRRRSSS!!!! The Scarlet Knights took both meetings from the Blue Jays last season. Granted, Hopkins had some notable losses, including Joel Tinney and Drew Supinski at midfield. If Hopkins stays healthy, they might be able to gain revenge on the Scarlet Knights.

Powerful article about a special lacrosse family, one great moment on the lacrosse field, and how to not let adversity define you.

Initially the story was simply about a moment. An amazing moment sure, but just a moment nonetheless.

The way it had been explained to me was that a Northampton boys lacrosse player, who doesn’t score often, scored in the waning moments of senior day, with his father, who was battling ALS, making a rare appearance in the stands.

That’s a good story on its own. But as I spent time with the Durfer family, it turned out to be much more than that.

My interactions with the family left me inspired.

The Northampton lacrosse players, coaches and parents were impressive. Everyone showed true perspective and wisdom regarding the moment they were involved in. That’s often hard to find in high school sports.

Lax All-Stars with 3 smart ways to prepare for the season. Also episode 2 of season 2 of the In Your Face podcast is now up as well.

What’s Up, Philly?

The Eagles beat the Cowboys 27-13. But the real craziness was in the Eagles press box. The Philly Inquirer's beat writer was ejected “from Lincoln Financial Field after he and a member of the Eagles' media relations department got into an argument over how loudly reporters in the press box were discussing a penalty.”

The story even has a lacrosse connection, as it looks like the individual in the press box who told on Jeff McLane was a former lacrosse player at Tufts. Great research by The Kid Chris.

World/National News.

The 49ers fired Chip Kelly. (Ed. Note: I say we bring him back to Philly.)

As more and more household appliances get connected to the internet, we could see dishwashers and fridges used as witnesses in future crime investigations.

High-tech washing machines and fridges will soon be used by detectives gathering evidence from crime scenes, experts have forecast. The advent of ‘the internet of things’ in which more devices are connected together in a world of ‘smart working’ could in future provide important clues for the police. Detectives are currently being trained to look for gadgets and white goods which could provide a ‘digital footprint’ of victims or criminals. High-tech washing machines and fridges will soon be used by detectives gathering evidence from crime scenes, experts have forecast.
